LATE SUMMER CSA
Our Late Summer CSA is a low-commitment, 6 week program consisting of a weekly pre-packed box with a mix of the best vegetables that we have to offer. Pick-up and delivery day will be WEDNESDAYS each week from September 2 – October 7. If you like, you can add on to your CSA to receive Certified Organic Cascadia Mushrooms (shiitakes) or our farm fresh flowers with your share each week!
We are able to offer a limited number of contactless home delivery options prioritized for folks who are high risk in our community or front-line workers (thank you!) and who live in the immediate Bellingham and Everson areas. If you live outside these areas but would like a home delivery, contact us for availability.
We also offer neighborhood locations for pick-up. Pick-up points are screened for safety, and to thank you for choosing this option we will reduce your share cost by $5/week (total for all six weeks: home delivery is $255, pick-up point is $225). You will choose your pick-up site/option during payment. At the moment these pick-up locations are limited to downtown Bellingham, Fairhaven, and Everson, but with enough interest we can expand those offerings.
What is in a box? 8-10 items per week of the best the farm has to offer you. Early September might include: Romano beans, an eggplant, two “Cabernet” red onions, rainbow chard, “Genovese” sweet basil, “Carmen” sweet frying peppers, Beefsteak slicer tomatoes, sweet “Mokum” carrots, and a head of green butter lettuce. Late September might include: A pint of mixed cherry tomatoes, an escarole, a bunch of “Chioggia” beets, two pounds of “Yukon Gold” potatoes, celery, “Rainbow Lacinato” kale, a butternut squash, and a bag of our baby spinach.
IS A CSA RIGHT FOR ME? Yes, if:
- You want to show solidarity with and support your farmers! CSAs provide up-front income to help us at Spring Time Farm ride the highs (and lows) of each season. Since food access is a bit of a question mark this year, a CSA will provide you with fresh, healthy produce straight from the farm to you.
- You are comfortable with, excited about, and committed to seasonal eating! We will provide weekly suggestions for how to use your veggies, but do not offer substitutions within shares. If there is something you don’t like, either challenge yourself to “learn-to-love” or gift it.
